Lowestoft and the surrounding area has many great assets, beautiful sandy beaches, gateway to the Broads National Park, a growing off shore energy sector and the first place to see the sunrise in the UK, but there is also a sense that we could do more with them and a desire to fully realise the area’s undoubted potential. Waveney District Council have enlisted the expertise of thinkingplace, the UK’s leading place branding agency to develop a Place ‘Story’ and ‘Brand’ for Lowestoft.
A story would benefit Lowestoft to talk about aspiration, pride and retaining talent and be positive about the place. The story will shape our approach to tourism, culture, where we invest in our town centre, what kind of infrastructure we need and what kind of businesses we should encourage to relocate here. It will be the building block to Lowestoft’s future, but to have the greatest impact it needs to be shaped and owned by as many people as possible. This is where you can get involved: thinkingplace will be running a workshop in Lowestoft where community and business representatives can hear more about the work being undertaken and feed their views in.
The Open Exhibition is an open to all visual art competition. It offers artists the opportunity to exhibit as part of a professionally curated and public-facing show, taking place over all three gallery spaces of Vivacity’s Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery.

A new publication launched to coincide with and featuring work from the Great Yarmouth Project Exhibition , a collaboration between Bruer Tidman and Mark Cator
“Utter Journal is a brand new photographic magazine, launching in December 2018 and bringing together a language of co-operation with other art mediums. We operate out of an old fishing warehouse in Great Yarmouth, the same town immortalised by the pioneering photography of Peter Henry Emerson in 1887. Utter Journal is aimed at all practitioners who have a love of photography. It’s not a magazine for photographers or about photographers, it’s for anyone who sees with photographs and is willing to navigate the intricate pathways of narrative composition.
The first issue reflects on an eighteen month collaboration between painter Bruer Tidman and photographer Mark Cator, local artists operating out of a coastal town that effortlessly combines art, industry, entertainment and a thousand year history, and all built on a sandbank on the edges of the North Sea. Their paintings and photographs offer up a subjective engagement with Great Yarmouth that has a beguiling empathy and understanding of place.”
